Austyn de Lugo
I’m a queer artist who is interested in exploring both the political and the homoerotic through art. I want to create work that is both visually stimulating, while also describing gay issues through a more true gay perspective, rather than the white-washed, heteronormalized, and desexualized views that we are more used to seeing. I take a lot of inspiration from the political works of Keith Haring and Shepard Fairey, as well as the homoerotic works of artists like Jack Balas, Tom of Finland, and Ron Griswald.
